    Shortline Products out of Pequannock, NJ offers a variety of Lackawanna and CNJ caboose parts, most were from the Bethlehem Car Works line.

    Hi Bob,

    These might work for you?

    They are a bit high, but the FREE SHIPPING helps.

    Regards, Vic B.

    I've found caboose kits in several places- Ebay, train shows and my local hobby shop.

    Hi Bob,

    That is a very good question. What kind of caboose kits are you looking for?

    You can purchase new Caboose kits from some resin kit manufacturers, but these are usually advanced kits of very specific prototypes. Sylvan, Funaro & Camerlengo, plus some other very small makers. I would be remiss if I did not say American Model Builders, LaserKits, also has a pretty good variety. Not cheap, but very nice. The other venue is eBay and to a lesser extent, train shows.

    Let us know if there are specific caboose kits you want or just any kind of caboose kits,

    Regards, Vic Bitleris

    started a topic Caboose Details

    Caboose Details

    In the last couple months I've been purchasing wooden caboose kits. Delving into the possibilities of what "could be", I've come across a number of resources for details that are caboose-specific.

    Here are a few-

    Adlake Markers

    https://www.tichytraingroup.com/Shop...e/Default.aspx

    Trucks and curved grabirons

    http://grandtline.com/products/mrr/m...lats_gons.html

    Details and lots of them!

    http://www.molocotrains.com/store/caboose-parts.html

    Cupola kits, end gates and a few other items.

    These are just a few. Does anyone have favorite spots to get caboose detail parts?
